The Waypost project will generate an estimated $21 million in tax revenue over its lifetime, which will benefit the local school district and other public services. The project will also create between 150-200 jobs during construction, and generate predictable, long-term income for landowners.
Agricultural presence can be maintained throughout the life of the project through native vegetation and other dual-use practices such as livestock grazing and bee pollination. This type of low-impact installation preserves farmland for its original use after project decommissioning.
Compared to many other types of commercial development, low-profile solar panels present minimal visual impact. Vegetative screening will be added around nearby homes.
